reSET Straight White Men (2018.)

Duration: 35'

Choreographers and dancers don't often have opportunities to utilize complex or fully-realized sets. With this in mind, Washington Ensemble Theatre provided opportunities for choreographer Petra Zanki to make piece on its elaborate theatrical set. Curated by Mark Haim, Babette Pendleton, and Alice Gosti, this reSET featured Petra's new work who created a new dance performance on the set of WET's production as a response to "Straight White Men" by Young Jean Lee, directed by Sara Porkalob.
